WHAT GOOD ADVERTISING IS
Buyer's Viewpoint of Merchandise
Must Be Considered First of Ail—
Keep Everlastingly at It.
Good advertising consists in telling
the public in language that they can
understand, what they want to know
about the goods you have to sell.
Failures in advertising follow the
avoidance of this simple rule. It Is all
ball player, and the real dyed in-the- |a question of viewpoint," says the Nov-
wool fan likes to watch good ball
players perform, be they white or
Marsans, however, is not a black
man, as a great many fans are led
to believe, but Is as white in color
as most of the ball players. lie Is
sun-tanned and naturally somewhat
brown from that cause.
In the absence of Johnny Hates
Marsans is holding down center field
and playing a star game. It was
his sterling catch of Knalre's hot liner
lhat saved a few runs In the second
game of the present series with the
Reds. Marsans Is batting over .300. *
Bill Phelon. a scribe with the Reds,
sends a long story to two Cuban news-
papers each evening by cable, telling
of Ihe Reds' game, and esperlally the
deeds of young Marsans. It is said
by Phelon that whenever Marsans
stars pnrlieularly the Cubans down
home celebrate the occasion with big
bonfires, etc. On the occasion recent*
ly when Marsans gathered in four hits
In one game the natives of the old
Spanish city had a parade, with the
burning of much fire and bright lights
along the way. The career of the
Reds’ player is being followed by ev-
ery Cuban in Cuba. At one time two
Cuban newspapers had their regular
baseball writers following the Reds for
exclusive stories of the Cuban players.
DIET AND HEALTH
By DB. T J. AI IERi
MONODIET DECREASES DAN-
GER FROM WASTE.
A French physician hat shown
that when the habit of eating
meat and other animal proteid
food*, eapecially egg*, is once
established, bacilli are devel-
oped that live on the watte from
the protein and that when meat
it discontinued from the ration
the twarmt of bacilli left with,
out work do terious injury,
much as rats turn to eatfog
book* and clothing when the
supply of exposed food on which
they have lived is withdrawn.
The various classes of bacteria
that dispose of waste matter
differ at the food differs upon
whose waste they live. The sys-
tem establishes defenses against
these much as settlers In a hew
region trap one kind'of vermin,
shoot another and poison an-
other. When the system has
only one kind of waste to take
care of, to antidote, the problem
Is greatly simplified, ao that the
defenses against disease, the dis-
ease overcoming capacity, Is
greatly Increased. This is only
another angle for viewing the
monodlet, absolute or approxi-
mate, as a meant of maintain-
ing health and efficiency and of
Most advertisers and copy writer*
are too full of what they see in the
things they have to advertise They
fall to consider the reader's viewpoint.
It Is a matter of only secondary
Importance to the buyer what you
think of your proposition. With (he
buyer it is purely a question of how
he (or she) can like what you have to
Nothing Is mote absurd than to ad
verttse the ‘‘biggest,*’ “the best
goods,-’ “the highest quality.” That's
what- you say about it. The public
want, to form their own judgment.
They consider themselves competent
and If you want to sell them you must
convince them by showing what you
have to sell. t ■
It's nothing to them that, you sav
your goods are “beat,” and of “highest
quality.” Most of the buying public
are from Missouri: Ibey want to be,
shown They want to see what you
have to offer.
Another common falling Is for large
concerns to assume that they are too
w ell known-to need advertising Every-
body knows us, they say, and if they
are in the market for our line of good*
we will surely Jeern of it No con-
cern i* so great that (hey don’t re
quire advertising, none so well known,
that some new buyer in the field has
not heard of them It Is sheer ego-
tism to think otherwise.
A product similar to Pos*um Cereal
was made In Battle Creek long before
Rost, went there. But the public didn’t
know ft. The concern that produced
tt thought everybody who might want
it knew about it. But Post thought
otherwise. And because he was wise-
ly otherwise, he made millions. Ad-
vertising did it.
And don’t expeM immediate, tan
gible and directly traceable results.
Most advertising ts a question of good
publicity, of telling the people all the
Those who place the largest orders
don’t buy every day. They but at in-
frequent iiitervala. hence the necessity
of “keeping* everlastingly at it.”
You may quit just when a large or-
der is about to be placed. And the
buyer when he does make up his mind
to buy doesn't remember the ad. you
placed a few months ago.
The salesman on the spot generally
get* the orders, the advertiser who
confronts this buyer when ready to
buy, reaps the harvest. That kind
of advertising pays.

nently, a success. The financial part
of it will come out in good condi-
tion. For next year the association
membership will be limited to twen-
ty gentlemen each investing $100.

REAL FOUNTAIN OF PUNCH
Provided by a British Officer in 1694
for the Entertainment of 8ix
Some of the papers have recently
devoted attention to the origin of j
punch, that famous seventeenth cen- ;
tnry drink which has long lost its :
popularity in this country, though it j
stiil survives to some extent in Eli- i
Owing to Its intimate connection j
with rum one might easily have iraa- I
gined thalt pouch originated in the ;
Weat Indies. In fact, however. It j
actually came from the East Indies !
and the name is said to be derived
from the Sanskrit, “panscha," five, on
account of Its five ingredients—arrak
(afterward rum), tea, sugar, lemon
and hot water.
The most magnificent bowl of punch
the world has ever seen was probably
that provided by the Right Hon. Ed-
ward Ruesei, who, when commanding
the British forces In the Mediterran-
ean in 1694, entertained 6,000 guests
at Alicante, where a large marble
fountain was filled with the liquor,
the ingredients being:
Four hogsheads of brandy, a pipe
of Malaga wine, 2,500 lemons, 20 gal-
lons of lime Juice, 8 hogsheads of wa-
ter, Spoirad* of grated nutmegs In
